    Exclamation Ubuntu 10.04 running hot on acer aspire one

    Hello, I just installed a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04 on my acer aspire one. One problem I have is the fan will run all the time, and it heats up. I'm afraid something might melt in side or something. Is there anyway to make ubuntu run cooler? Thanks.

    Never mind, I found out it was firefox using crazy CPU power, and that was heating it up, not ubuntu. I install Chromium instead, problem solved.
